A pretty lengthy write-up on Eurogamer comparing Mass Effect 3 on Wii U to the PS3 and XBox 360 versions:

So essentially it's better than the PS3 version (which had problems) and about the same as the 360 version? That might not seem like an impressive feat, but this is a launch title (and a port). Looks like the Wii U has a little horsepower after all.

I'm surprised considering how ME3 on Wii U was made by the same devs who made Funky barn.

Comparable to a seven-year old console that'll be replaced in 1 or 2 years... not to mention PS3 versions are normally better and the PS3 is more powerful than the Wii U.

I think the Wii U is more powerful than the Ps3 not by much but still more.

yeah guys, if any of you think of getting into ME3 via the Wii U version...don't. ME2 wouldn't be nearly enjoyable for me if I never played 1 and I've heard that's equally as true for 3. It's really a series you need to play from the beginning in order to fully appreciate it.

Maybe if the original team was working with the newer tech instead of outsourcing the project to an off-the-wall group, then maybe they'd all get the same thing.

Yeah, but we've known for a while now that the next Xbox and PS system will almost certainly be more powerful than the Wii U. You have to keep your expectations realistic, right?

I have the PS3 version, so I have no real reason to get the Wii U version. I would only ever consider it if they bought Mass Effect 1 and 2 as downloadable games (with all DLC and Gamepad features included), and they make the Omega DLC and later DLC for the Wii U version.

Or better yet, give us the Mass Effect Trilogy Collection with all the DLC and Gamepad features for all of the games :)

I think the thing about this that most people don't seem to taking into account is that the PS3 was about five years old when ME3 came out, and some of the ports were/are still inferior even though developers like Naughty Dog have shown just how powerful a machine it is. A port to the WiiU is superior to a PS3 version on release day - things can only improve as developers come to understand the architecture better.
